NASHVILLE, Ind. (AP) — The trial for a Bloomington man charged with murder in the fatal beating an Indiana University student will not be held until next year at the earliest.

A Brown County judge this week continued the trial of 49-year-old Daniel Messel until Feb. 24.

Messel is charged in connection with the slaying of 22-year-old IU student Hannah Wilson. Her body was found April 24 near Lake Lemon, about 10 miles northwest of IU’s Bloomington campus.

Messel is being held without bond at the Brown County Jail.
